Jensen Coopen: First In Design & Technology Worldwide

Coopen Jensen, 16 of age came first in “design and technology” worldwide at the end of O-Level exams of Cambridge. The student of John Kennedy College (JKC) received an award for “Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards” on the 20th of June.

Jensen Coopen is on cloud nine for a few weeks. after learning that he is number one in “design and technology” worldwide. His perseverance and hard work have been fruitful. Jensen Coopen was inspired by his father to implement the project that earned him this recognition.

For the School Certificate examinations project, he had to develop an artifact. “Mon papa est professeur au Mauritius Institute of Training and Development (MITD). Il a l’âme d’un bricoleur. Mais, il égare souvent ses outils. C’est ainsi que l’idée de fabriquer une boîte à outils a germée,” he recalls. He works well on the choice of materials, dimensions and balance among others. The toolkit can also be used as luggage office because it is mounted on wheels.

The young man admits he expected to reap some very good points from his toolbox. “J’étais à la fois content et surpris quand j’ai reçu la lettre de l’Université de Cambridge. Je suis premier au niveau mondial en Design & Technology. L’île Maurice est peut-être un point sur la carte mondiale, mais ses citoyens sont nombreux à faire flotter le quadricolore avec fierté,” said the eldest in a family of two. He received 10 units at O-Level exams. Jensen Coopen is currently studying in Lower VI. He opted for mathematics, physics and the “design and technology” as main subjects and computing as subsidiary level. “J’espère réussir brillamment aux examens du HSC  l’année prochaine et pourquoi pas être lauréat,” he said with a smile.

Jensen Coopen added that he was interested in the IT industry, technology and design since childhood. “J’ai grandi en regardant mon père bricoler dans son atelier. J’ai ainsi hérité de cette fibre conceptuelle et artistique. Je souhaite ainsi faire carrière dans le domaine d’ingénierie plus précisément le développement durable,” says this fan of video games. In his spare time, Jensen Coopen enjoy TV shows, crafts and music. He also like to sleep.
